About You

You are LOVED by God. There is nothing you can do, or can't do to make him love you more or less. He loves you because he loves you. Because you are His child.

More then your past
Worth it
A treasure
You matter.

God is so near. (and so cool!)

I finally have got some time to get on here! I've been wanting to share some things for awhile, they don't exactly have to do with me personally but they are things that I think are worth sharing with others!

These little stories just help my faith, and keep me remembering how near our God is.

The first one is my sweet friend, I don't want to mention names, but she is a teacher and she has been praying for a "troubled" student for a few years. She had him as a freshman, and now again as a junior. He clearly has issues, and she's been praying for him to come to the Lord. The neat thing is, that one day, he came in her classroom during her lunch and started telling her what is going on in his home life, and was pretty sad about it, and he asked her about being a Christian and about Jesus. He wanted to know how he could go to heaven because his brother died while texting a year ago and he wants to make sure he'll see his brother again, but he thought he was going to go to hell because of all the bad things he has done. She explained to him what a loving forgiving God we have, and that he forgives our sins, that he sent his son Jesus to die to cover our sins, that he just needed to ask Jesus to be his savior! That troubled young man is seeking Jesus. It's so awesome to see God answer prayers like that! He not only answered her pray, but the young man came to HER to come to the Lord. How cool is that?!

Another neat story was one I heard listening to a live video stream of Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife Grace. They were talking about when he was first starting out as a Pastor and they had no money. The explained how God provided for them in kind of a funny way, they lived on a very narrow street, and they had an old junky car. I guess people would hit their car when it was parked on the road, (because the street was so narrow) and they would come to their door and offer them money for hitting their car rather then calling the insurance company. So they would use that money for whatever they needed! Groceries, or bills, whatever. They said it happened like three times! What are the chances? God was providing them money, for their needs. Can you just imagine? You pray for help and someone comes to your door with cash for hitting your junky car? lol. God has a sense of humor that is for sure.

Lastly, I heard a story on K-love one day that touched me and I have not forgotten about it. Some lady called in, said she was driving in her car, and she was listening to the song, Light up the sky by the Afters.

She said she was thinking to herself, how cool would it be if God just showed himself in the sky once and awhile. ( I think he does this a lot if we are looking for it) But just for her, that day, he decided to do something big, something awesome just for her. She said she looked up into the sky and there was a rainbow. God was showing off. lol. I love that!!! God is so cool. He is so close to us, so knows our thoughts, and sometimes he wants us to realize how close he really is. I bet she felt like falling to her knees at that moment.  I love God. :)
Listen to the song, it's a good one.
